With the universe in mind, I decided that each circle would represent a planet in the universe. I tried stars but I could never get them to look right - they seemed to clutter the design. The simplicity of the planet squares and yarn colors made it elegant and calm.  

This is the first time I have ever designed and crocheted an afghan for anyone - it took me forever!  

Bill loves his afghan - he says it's artwork. He want's to hang it on the wall but it's a little too big : >

This is a very simple crochet design but for some reason I kept making mistakes on the rounds. At one point I had all the squares finished with all the ends sewed in and half of them were crocheted wrong! This is a great design to use up scraps of worsted weight yarn. Enjoy!
